School Environment

SCHOOL BACKGROUND

Borras Park Community Primary School is situated on the north eastern edge of Wrexham, surrounded by private housing, close to shops, local amenities, golf club and open countryside.

The school was first opened in September 1971 as a mixed Infant and Junior school with 240 pupils.  It was immediately obvious that the building could not house the growing number of children.  When Borras Park Junior School was opened in 1975 on an adjacent site the schools became two separate independent units.

In September 2016 the two separate schools amalgamated to form Borras Park Community Primary School and the school now provides education for children aged 3-11. 

The school is an English-medium infant school with a Nursery and specialist teaching facilities for hearing impaired pupils. The school has an established early education setting, taking children in the term after their third birthday. In addition, the school operates a free breakfast club; an after school play scheme and a wrap around Nursery provision.

The school buildings are located on two separate sites- the infant site and the junior site.

The infant building is semi open plan in design, comprising four teaching areas for Later Foundation Phase (Year 1 and 2 pupils) with shared craft spaces and cloakroom. 

Early years children (Nursery and Reception) attend a purposely designed Early Years Unit within the main school.

Children in the junior building are organised into mixed ability classes. There are at least two classes for each age group. Within each class children may be taught in whole class groups, ability groups or individually, as appropriate to their needs. Each class has its own class teacher who is primarily responsible for the delivery of the National Curriculum. Each class also has access to shared craft spaces and cloakroom.

 

There is a resourced provision for children with a hearing impairment within both the infant and junior departments. These classes are an integral feature of the school, catering for children from the wider area of Wrexham County Borough.

At Borras Park Community Primary School we pride ourselves on the quality of the curriculum we provide. It is our aim to ensure all children meet their full potential providing support and challenge to children of all abilities. 

We keep up to date with the latest resources and technologies and fully engage the pupils in decision making throughout school through our various committees such as School Council and our Eco group.The school has achieved a number of awards, including the National Healthy Schools Quality award, Eco Schools Green Flag, Investors in People Silver award, Becta ICT accreditation, Activ Marc for Physical activity and Basic Skills Quality standard.

In this way the school continues to expand and adapt to the changing needs of the children, the curriculum and the community.
